Lots of Great News!

Wednesday, November 2nd, 2011

Wow…I can't believe it's November already! This year has flown by. I'm SO not ready for the holidays! Though I have to say that I'm looking forward to two things this Thanksgiving — one, the Klingon Christmas Carol play, which I'll be appearing in for a guest role on the 27th, and the release of Immortal Rider on the 22nd!

Ooh, and here's a neat thing — Immortal Rider is a Christmas story! No, really. Okay, maybe not exactly, but it does take place in December, and there's mention of Christmas and candy canes.

So it's a Christmas story. :grin:

Anyway, I've gotten a couple of awesome reviews for Immortal Rider already, and this one, from Publishers Weekly, had me giddy:

Ione’s second Lords of Deliverance paranormal (after Eternal Rider) provides a thrilling ride for readers. Limos, Satan’s betrothed and daughter of the biblical Lilith, will become a horseman of the apocalypse if, like her brother Reseph (now known as Pestilence), her seal is found and broken. At the engagement party for Limos’s brother Ares, Arik Wagner, a soldier for the U.S. army’s R-X paranormal unit, steals a kiss from Limos and is dragged down to hell, where he’s tortured until Limos helps rescue him. Their burgeoning relationship and attempts to end Pestilence’s apocalyptic threat are impeded by the lingering effects of Arik’s torture and personal demons, Limos’s shame over long-held secrets and lies, and the fight against the forces arrayed against humanity. A secondary plot involving Limos’s brother Thanatos adds more character torment while setting up the next installment. Ione balances all the angst with plenty of action, sexual tension, and dark humor.

Woot!

Also, Eternal Rider was nominated as one of the Goodreads Choice picks for best romance of the year! The best part of it is not only am I up there with some HUGELY talented authors, but I'm there because of the readers. It was YOUR reviews that got all of the books nominated, so thank you!!!!

Immortal Rider News!

Wednesday, September 21st, 2011

Okay, I'm excited beyond belief to announce this:

For quite a while now, I've tried to explain why my ebook versions of my books released on the first of the month, while the print version released earlier (usually,) on the Tuesday before the first. It's a long story, but it all had to do with internal contracts and legalities, and crap that was taking forever to get ironed out. But my publisher assured me that they were working on it. Trust me, it was frustrating for them too, because they WANT to sell ebooks.

Well, guess what?

Immortal Rider comes out on November 22nd. The print book AND the ebook!

I am SO excited! Like, jumping around the house, screaming at the top of my lungs, excited.

I want to thank all my awesome readers for their patience and understanding. You guys rock!!!!!
